CNN’s Anderson Cooper, reporting from Egypt, explained how he and his camera crew were attacked as they were reporting on protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Cooper said in a video on CNN, “It was pandemonium.” He added, “A young man would come up, look at you and then punch you right in the face.”

Based on what he says, protesters were “punching us in the head” and “They don’t want any pictures taken” while Cooper was “using a little flip camera but they didn’t notice.” He also commented, “The situation was getting very bad, very quickly.”
